The Country Road + NGV First Nations Commissions is a national, biennial mentorship and exhibition program that pairs emerging Australian First Nations artists and designers with one of eight esteemed industry mentors. Working collaboratively, the mentors will each support and guide an emerging artist to create their most ambitious work to date.
Responding to this year’s theme of ‘My Country’, these new works will be unveiled in March 2O24 in a major exhibition at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia.
We are thrilled to announce that James Tylor (Kaurna Miyurna) will be mentoring artist Aidan Hartshorn (Walgalu/Wiradjuri) and Maree Clarke (Yorta Yorta/Wamba Wamba/Mutti Mutti/Boonwurrung) will mentor artist Mitch Mahoney (Boonwurrung/Barkinji) for 2O24.
